Q. Weeping Willow

I have a weeping willow. It’s approximately 10 feet tall and during a wind storm, it split in half and fell. Half of it is still standing. Is there something I can put on the exposed tree to save it?

Q. Lost Bark

We have a 15-foot weeping willow tree that the bark has been stripped from,  about a foot wide all the way around the tree by a bear. There are no leaves above the damaged area but some below. Can I do anything to help this tree?

I am sorry, but there is not much that can be done. Once a tree has been girdled, what is above the girdle will not survive. You can try contacting a local arborist. They may be able to graft some healthy bark as a bridge, but this does not always work.

Q. Six Foot Weeping Willow

I have a six foot tall willow that is permanently in dormancy. It looks as though it will open every year, and has plenty of buds but never open. Any ideas?

It may be lacking nutrients. You should have the soil tested to see what it is lacking.

Q. Non-Blooming Weeping Willow

Why will my weeping willow not blossom? I have had it for 2 years. It had a few blossoms last year but none this year. I have never pruned it. Thanks.

Weeping willows don't flower. Are you perhaps referring to a weeping cherry? There are several reason why a plant may not blossom well. This article will help you pinpoint which might be causing the lack of blooms on your plant:

Q. Weeping Willow Tree Bark Damage

Most of the bark on my weeping willow tree is coming off–we have had extreme heat as of late and it is dry. The trunk is small -about 4 inches in diameter and 10 feet high. Up to this point it has been doing great, though some of the leaves are yellowing, but overall it still seems to be in good shape. Will it heal itself without this bark?

Q. My Weeping Willow Is Dying

I just planted a weeping willow in my front lawn a few days ago. I am watering it plenty, but all the leaves on top are starting to get crunchy and wilted and falling off. I don’t know if there is something that I can buy or what I can do to help it! I love this little tree already, and I don’t want it to die.

First, be sure you have planted this well away from any kind of plumbing pipes. Weeping willow need TONS of water and will head to where it is..........you feel it is getting plenty of water. Compared to other trees, this one takes twice as much. Someone else may be able to provide a different answer but usually their only requirement is water, water and more water until they are established. Then they will find their own. :-}
